Chernobyl and the Finale of the Soviet Empire
In this film Joachim Polzer has expressed much of how we felt after Chernobyl. There was a film about this on Swedish TV recently and almost forgotten memories of those days came back. Atomic fallout spread far in many directions, but it took days until the collapse of the reactor was admitted in Moscow. The fallout blew over the Baltic Sea to Sweden for example, with consequenses for the reindeer pastures in particular. Polzer has expressed the consequenses in the divided Berlin in this very interesting movie.

"one year before the Berlin Wall fell"
The Chernobyl disaster happened on April 29th, 1986, not in April 1987, and the Berlin Wall fell in November 1989, three and a half years later.
